Refugee Resettlement Services

Government-appointed nonprofit organizations, frequently associated with the faith community, that provide resettlement services through a network of local affiliates for refugee populations designated by the U.S. Department of State. These organizations take the lead in helping newly arrived refugees or refugee families make an adjustment to their new home and community. Services provided by local affiliates may include reception for arriving refugees; provision of a "welcome kit" of immediate necessities; periodic visits with the family during the early days of their transition; collection and provision of household goods; cultural orientation and ESL classes; and assistance in locating housing and employment, using public transportation and identifying other needed services.

State Refugee Coordinators

Designated representatives of state government offices whose responsibility is to direct resources towards helping refugees and asylees achieve economic and social self-sufficiency after their arrival to the U.S. These entities were established through the Federal Refugee Act of 1980, which incorporated an existing network of private resettlement agencies and public agencies into a national Refugee Resettlement Program. Each state participating in the program is represented by a State Refugee Coordinator.
